British Army Selects BAE, Pitch Technologies for Future Collective Training Program

BAE Systems and Pitch Technologies have received a contract to deliver a “fundamental” training program for the British Army.

The agreement supports the army’s Collective Training Transformation Program, an effort to implement collective military training through mobile, integrated, and digitized solutions.

Under the contract, the companies will define technical assurance requirements for a future synthetic training program that utilizes virtual environments.

The future virtual platform will give warfighters a wide range of battlefield options for practice.

The system is expected to provide “hugely complex” training scenarios and locations that are too expensive and dangerous in real life.

‘New Center of Excellence’

Following technical assurance, the firms will assist the British Army in selecting a strategic partner to assemble the virtual training program in subsequent phases.

The team will serve as a “trusted advisor,” maximizing their expertise in the maturation of the future collective training system.

“We are delighted that the British Army and BAE Systems have chosen us to develop and deliver this new centre of excellence,” Pitch Technologies UK Business Development Manager Suranga Wickramasekera stated.

“We look forward to working alongside the Army and collaborating with other specialists from the community to provide independent and impartial technical advice to procure and develop future training systems with improved coherence, system interoperability and reuse,” BAE Systems Products and Training Services Director Brooke Hoskins said.
